To our Trusty and Well-beloved Norman Platt Lambert, of the City of 
Ottawa, in the Province of Ontario, in Our Dominion of Canada, Esquire, 

GREETING : 

Know you, that as well for the especial trust and confidence We have 
manifested in you, as for the purpose of obtaining your advice and assistance

IN TESTIMONY WHEREOF, We have caused these Our Letters to be made

Witness: Our Right Trusty and Well-beloved John, Baron Tweedsmuir of

At Our Government House, in Our City of Ottawa, in Our Dominion of

Honourable Members of the Senate: 

Members of the House of Commons: 

It affords me much pleasure to greet you upon the resumption of your 
Parliamentary duties. 

The interval which has elapsed since the last Session witnessed the Corona 
tion, in the month of May, of Their Majesties King George the Sixth and Queen 

5196014 



4 THE SENATE 2 GEORGE VI 



Elizabeth. The event was one of special significance to the nations of the 
British Commonwealth. In the Coronation service and ceremonial, recognition 
was given to the relationship between the Sovereign and his peoples in the 
several Dominions, as embodied in the Statute of Westminster. 

Members of the Government participated in the deliberations of the Imperial 
Conference which followed immediately after the Coronation. The Summary of 
Proceedings of the Conference will be placed -before you at an early date for 
your consideration. It is the belief of the Government that the opportunities 
afforded for the exchange of views and information on questions of common 
interest and concern, will serve to further the well-being of all parts of the 
Commonwealth. 

It is gratifying to note that, during the past year, there has been a further 
substantial advance in Canada s economic recovery. Revenues have reached 
new levels. Trade with other countries has materially expanded. There has 
been a general increase in employment and marked decrease in the numbers 
receiving unemployment aid. 

The recurrence, in a more acute form, of drought conditions in certain areas 
of Western Canada has unfortunately made it necessary to provide assistance 
on an unprecedented scale. The Government intends to continue its activities 
under the Prairie Farm Rehabilitation Act. 

In view of the success which has attended efforts to assist in the training of 
unemployed young people, it is proposed to extend the scheme during the coming 
year. 

The Department of Agriculture has been reorganized and its services 
consolidated along lines designed to improve the Standard and acceptability of 
Canadian farm products. 

Arrangements are being completed for the inauguration of a national trans- 
Canada air service. 

The National Employment Commission, the Royal Commission appointed 
to inquire into conditions in the Textile Industry, and the Commission appointed 
under the provisions of the Veterans Assistance Commission Act, 1936, have 
concluded their duties. The reports of these Commissions will be tabled in 
due course. 

The strains and stresses, which economic and social developments since 
Confederation have placed upon Canada s governmental structure, have dis 
closed the necessity for adjustments which will enable it the more effectively 
to serve provincial and national needs, and to promote and preserve Canadian 
unity. My Ministers are of the opinion that, with exact and adequate informa 
tion, it should be possible for the appropriate authorities to work out satisfactory 
solutions. As a first step towards this end, a Royal Commission of Inquiry has 
been appointed to re-examine the economic and financial basis of Confederation 
and the distribution of legislative powers in the light of the new conditions 
which have arisen in the past seventy years. The Commission has already held 
sittings in many parts of the Dominion. 

The co-operation of the Provinces has been sought with a view to an 
amendment of the British North America Act, which would empower the Par 
liament of Canada to enact forthwith a national scheme of unemployment 
insurance. My Ministers hope the proposal may meet with early approval in 
order that unemployment insurance legislation may be enacted during the 
present session of Parliament. 

Members of the House of Commons will be invited to consider the report of 
the Special Committee on Elections and Franchise Acts, and you will be asked 
to enact such legislation as may be necessary to implement such of the Com 
mittee s recommendations as meet with their approval. 

A measure will be submitted to extend the authority of the Board of 
Railway Commissioners. 



A.D. 1938 27TH JANUARY 



Legislation will be introduced with a view to furthering the principle of 
Parliamentary control of the export of electrical power. 

The international situation generally continues to give much ground for 
anxiety. My Ministers have endeavoured, as opportunity has afforded, to 
promote international understanding and good-will. They have sought to join 
the efforts of Canada to those of other countries which are seeking by co-operation 
and conciliation to effect a settlement of questions and issues which concern 
the world s peace. 

The Administration has followed with deep interest the course of the 
negotiations being conducted with a view to the conclusion of a trade agreement 
between the United Kingdom and the United States of America. My Ministers 
are fully alive to the importance of these negotiations, and to Canada s interest 
in their outcome. 

In August last, the Canadian Government approached the Government 
of the United States with a view to extending and revising the trade agreement 
concluded between them in 1935. Exploratory conversations followed which 
have resulted in efforts to effect a new agreement on a broad and comprehensive 
basis. It is hoped that negotiations may so progress as to render it possible 
to submit the new agreement to Parliament, for its consideration, during the 
present Session. 

With a number of other countries, adjustments have been made, during the 
past year, in our commercial relations in order to facilitate a wider exchange of 
commodities. 

The Government is convinced that, in seeking to co-operate with the United 
Kingdom and other countries in efforts to promote international trade, it is 
pursuing one of the most effective means of ensuring economic security and 
progress in Canada, and the betterment of conditions in other parts of the world. 

Members of the House of Commons: 

The Public Accounts of the last fiscal year and the Estimates for the 
coming year will be submitted for your consideration. 

Honourable Members of the Senate: 

Members of the House of Commons: 

In inviting your careful consideration of the important matters which will 
engage your attention, I pray that Divine Providence may guide and bless your 
deliberations. 

The Commons withdrew. 

His Excellency the Governor General was pleased to retire. 

The Senate was resumed. 

The Honourable Senator Dandurand presented to the Senate a Bill in 
tituled : "An Act relating to Railways." 
The said Bill was read the first time. 

The Honourable the Speaker informed the Senate that a copy of the Speech 
of His Excellency the Governor General had been left in his hands. 
The same was read by The Honourable the Speaker. 

On motion, it was 

Ordered, That the Speech of His Excellency the Governor General be taken 
into consideration on Wednesday, next. 



THE SENATE 2 GEORGE VI 



The Honourable the Speaker read to the Senate a Message from His Majesty 
the King acknowledging the Address of the Canadian Parliament on the occasion 
of His Majesty s Accession to the Throne, as follows: 

BUCKINGHAM PALACE. 
Members of the Senate and of the House of Commons of Canada. 

I thank you most sincerely for the assurances of loyalty and support con 
tained in the Address which you have presented to me upon the occasion of my 
Accession to the Throne. It is the dearest wish of The Queen and myself that 
our Reign may be marked, under Divine Providence, by the blessings of peace 
and by a steady advancement in the welfare and prosperity of all our Peoples; 
and in our labours to this end we shall be strengthened and encouraged by the 
prayers and goodwill of the Canadian Parliament and People. 

GEORGE R.I. 
12th April, 1937. 

The Honourable the Speaker read to the Senate a Message from His Majesty 
the King acknowledging the Address of the Canadian Parliament on the occasion 
of Their Majesties Coronation, as follows: 

BUCKINGHAM PALACE. 

Members of the Senate and of the House of Commons of Canada: 

It is with feelings of deep gratitude that I acknowledge the message of 
loyalty and congratulation conveyed in your Address of the 10th April which 
was presented to me by my Prime Minister of Canada on the llth May. 

The assurances of loyalty and devotion addressed to us on that occasion 
will always be an encouragement to The Queen and myself in the performance 
of our high task. 

We were glad to know that the Speakers of your two Houses were present 
at the solemn ceremony of our Coronation. The participation in that ceremony 
of representatives from our oversea Dominions fittingly marked the position of 
the Crown as symbolising the unity and free association of the peoples of the 
British Commonwealth. 

Throughout our reign it will be our constant aim to cherish and maintain, 
to the best of our powers, the heritage of justice, civil liberty, and ordered 
freedom which we have received from those who in past generations helped 
to build up this association of nations; and we rejoice to know that in our 
endeavours to promote, under Divine guidance, the welfare and happiness of 
our Peoples, we shall be supported by the prayers and affection of the people of 
Canada. 

GEORGE R.I. 
29th June, 1937. 

The Honourable the Speaker presented to the Senate the Report of the 
Joint Librarians, for the year 1937. 

The same was then read by the Clerk, as follows: 



A.D. 1938 27TH JANUARY 



LIBRARY OF PARLIAMENT

To the Honourable the Speaker of the Senate:

the hands of Senators and Members shortly. 

The superannuation of Mr. M. C. MacCormac, who had been in the Library 
for more than fifty years, led to some promotions of members of the staff and 
created a vacancy in the position of Registry and Shelving Clerk. After com 
petitive examinations, the Civil Service Commission appointed Mr. Robert Morris 
Hamilton to the vacant position. Mr. Hamilton is a B.A. of McGill University 
and Bachelor of Library Science of McGill. He also held a Carnegie Fellowship 
at Columbia University in 1936-7. 

The Index volume of the completed twenty volumes of the Dictionary of 
American Biography was received last November; and the Index to the very 
valuable set of the Private Papers of James Boswell (Isham Collection) has 
also been received. The last, and sixth, volume of the Encyclopaedia of Canada, 
edited by W. Stewart Wallace, has now been shelved. Many new works on 
economics, international affairs, history, and so on, have been added to the 
Library. The one-volume edition of Audubon s " Birds of America " was recently 
purchased. It contains 500 Plates. Though reduced in size, the pictures of the 
birds are coloured, as nearly as possible, like those in Audubon s rare and 
valuable Elephant Folio edition, of which the Library is fortunate enough to 
possess a copy. 

Amongst interesting donations to the Library during 1937 are the following: 

"Art in Federal Buildings." This finely-illustrated volume was privately 
printed, though related to the United States Treasury Department s "Art Pro 
gram," which has been in operation for two years. The Library is indebted to 
sponsors of the book, and to the Canadian Legation at Washington, through whom 
it was received. 

Another volume of the beautifully illustrated set of the Catalogue of Mr. 
F. J. Nettlefold s art collection has been donated this year. Also a further 
volume (No. 12) of the Letters of Sir Walter Scott has been received from an 
unknown donor. 

In spite of numerous readjustments, referred to in former Reports, there is 
still some congestion in the Library, though the Librarians and staff are doing 
everything possible to make things convenient to users of the Library. 

Respectfully submitted, 

MARTIN BURRELL, 

FELIX DESROCHERS, 

Joint Librarians. 

Ordered, That the same do lie on the Table. 

With leave of the Senate, and 
On motion, it was 

Ordered, That when the Senate adjourns to-day, it do stand adjourned 
until Tuesday, next, at eight o clock in the evening. 

The Senate adjourned.

266 THE SENATE 2 GEORGE VI 



PRAYERS. 

The Honourable Senator McRae moved, that it be 

Resolved, That the public interest demands the discouragement or refusal 
by parliament of further applications to it, by way of private Bills for divorces 
to be enacted on behalf of persons to whom other recourse is made available; 

The Senate, therefore, should divest itself of all such special obligations 
incidental to private Bills of divorce as, in the past, it has assumed, and in 
furtherance of such purpose and make possible its achievement in consonance 
with the first paragraph of this resolution, the Senate should promote and sup 
port legislation so providing. 

After debate, and 

The question being put on the said motion, it was 

Passed in the negative. 

The Honourable Senator Black, from the Standing Committee on Banking 
and Commerce, to whom was referred the Bill (9), intituled: "An Act to amend 
the Canada Shipping Act, 1934," reported that they had gone through the said 
Bill, and had directed him to report the same to the Senate, without any 
amendment. 

With leave of the Senate, 

The said Bill was then read the third time. 

The question was put whether this Bill shall pass. 

It was resolved in the affirmative. 

Ordered, That a Message be sent to the House of Commons to acquaint 
that House that the Senate have passed this Bill, without any amendment. 

The Honourable Senator Black, from the Standing Committee on Banking 
and Commerce, to whom was referred the Bill (123), intituled: "An Act to 
amend The Excise Act, 1934," reported that they had gone through the said Bill, 
and had directed him to report the same to the Senate with several amendments, 
which he was ready to submit whenever the Senate would be pleased to receive 
the same. 

The said amendments were then read by the Clerk, as follows: 

Page 2, line 16. For " penalty " substitute " fine ". 

Page 6, lines 17 to 20, both inclusive. For Clause 17, substitute the 
following: 

" 17. Subsection one of section one hundred and seventy-two of the said 
Act is repealed and the following is substituted therefor: 

172. (1) A licence to carry on the trade or business of a brewer may be 
granted to any person who has complied with the provisions of this Act, if the 
granting of such licence has been approved by the district inspector, and such 
person has, jointly with a guarantee company, approved by the Minister, entered 
into a bond to His Majesty, in such sum as the Minister may determine but in 
no case shall such sum be less than five thousand dollars. " 

Page 10, line 4. For " allows " substitute " suffers ". 

The said amendments were concurred in, and 

Ordered, That the said Bill, as amended, be placed on the Orders of the Day 
for a third reading at the next sitting of the Senate. 

The Honourable Senator Black, from the Standing Committee on Banking 
and Commerce, to whom was referred the Message from the House of Commons 
disagreeing to the amendment made by the Senate to the Bill (13), intituled: 
"An Act to amend the Lord s Day Act," presented the following Report: 



A.D. 1938 9ra JUNE 267 



The same was then read by the Clerk, as follows: 

WEDNESDAY, 8th June, 1938. 

The Standing Committee on Banking and Commerce to whom was referred 
the Message from the House of Commons disagreeing to the amendment made by 
the Senate to the Bill No. (13), intituled: "An Act to amend the Lord s Day Act," 
have in obedience to the order of reference of the 12th May, 1938, considered the 
said Message and now beg leave to report, as follows: 

The Committee recommends that the Senate do insist on its amendment for 
the following reasons: 

1. The corporation being the person guilty of the offence and the only one 
to be possibly benefited by the offence is the only person which should be 
penalized. To penalize officers, directors or employees is unjust and is especially 
unjust in the case of officers or employees whose position may depend on obedience 
to company policy. 

2. The amendment does provide an increase in the minimum penalty in 
the case of a third or subsequent offence. There are many very small companies, 
such for example, as small canneries, in respect of whom a fine necessarily 
greater than fifty dollars might be unduly severe and result in reluctance to 
convict. 

3 There can be no reason why the imposition of fines if appropriately heavy 
should have less effect in the case of offenses against the Lord s Day Act 
in the case of offenses against any other Act. 
All which is respectfully submitted. 

F. B. BLACK, 

Chairman. 

Ordered, That the said Report be placed on the Orders of the Day for 
consideration on Tuesday, next.

On motion of the Right Honourable Senator Meighen, it was 
Ordered, That during the coming recess of Parliament the Parliamentary 
Counsel of the Senate be authorized and commissioned as follows: 

1. To examine the records of the Quebec Conference and such other pre- 
confederation records as disclose the scope of the intended legislative powers of 
that precise central or general union which was presented to and accepted by 
the three original provinces of Canada; and 

2. To compare the text of Part VI of the British North America Act, 1867, 
headed " Distribution of Legislative Powers " with (a) such pre-confederation 
records and (b) such pronouncements of the Judicial Committee of the Privy 
Council as define or disclose the legislative powers of the Parliament of Canada 
at the present time; and 

3. To report to His Honour the Speaker for the information of the Senate 

(a) Any material differences between the scheme of distribution of legis 
lative powers between Dominion and provinces as apparently intended 
at the time of confederation and the like legislative powers as expressed 
by the text of Part VI of the British North America Act, 1867; also any 
material differences between either such pre-confederation scheme of 
distribution or such text and such pronouncements of such Judicial 
Committee as define or disclose as aforesaid with relation to Dominion 
legislative powers as of the present time; and 

(b) In what respects, if at all, it would be necessary to cause the British 
North America Act to be amended so as to produce consonance (so far 
as distribution of legislative powers is concerned) with the apparent 
intent of the provinces which originally constituted this Dominion. Also, 
in what respects, if at all, it is necessary to cause that Act to be 
amended in order to render it (so far as distribution of legislative powers 
is concerned) competent to meet, and sufficient for, the present legis 
lative requirements of the Dominion, so far as these have become 
apparent or are determinable; and 

(c) Concerning any other matter or thing appearing to be relevant to the 

examination and report hereby authorized. 

That out of any monies available to the Senate there be placed at the 
disposal of the Parliamentary Counsel an accountable advance of five hundred 
dollars for defraying the costs and expenses of such examination and report

A.D. 1938 30TH JUNE 375 



The Right Honourable Senator Graham, from the Special Committee 
appointed to inquire into and report upon the best means of relieving the 
country from its extremely serious railway condition and financial burden con 
sequent thereto, presented the following Report. 

The same was then read by the Clerk, as follows: 

Thursday, 30th June, 1938. 

The Special Committee of the Senate appointed to inquire into and report 
upon the best means of relieving the country from its extremely serious railway 
condition and financial burden consequent thereto, begs leave to report, as 
follows: 

1. The Committee has held 43 sessions, has examined 31 of the principal 
officers of the two railway systems, and has had lodged with it no less than 
97 exhibits, many of them voluminous in content and technical in character 
and detail. The Committee has also heard evidence in extensive detail from 
representatives of the Dominion Joint Legislative Committee of the Railway 
Transportation Brotherhoods, with which was associated the Trades and 
Labour Congress of Canada, also from the Canadian Brotherhood of Railway 
Employees. The recorded proceedings of the Committee cover 1284 printed 
pages. 

2. The evidence before the Committee was not completed until very 
shortly before Prorogation and consequently the Committee has been unable, 
through lack of time, to analyse the vast mass of material before it in such 
manner as to enable it to present a report either satisfactory to itself or 
valuable to the public. The proceedings before the Committee and the publicity 
given thereto must have contributed greatly to the information of all interested 
and should be of inestimable value in the further consideration of the problem 
by the government and people of this country. 

3. Having regard to the desirability of completing the inquiry, and to 
the preservation of the value of the examination already made, and the 
preparation of an adequate report thereon, the Committee recommends that 
it be re-appointed early in the next session of Parliament. The intention is 
that a thorough review shall be made of all evidence and other material already 
at the disposal of the Committee, and a report thereon presented to Parliament. 

4. The Committee may deem it advisable, when later convened, to obtain 
further data bearing upon the general problem and its possible solution. 

5. In the meantime, the Committee would request the two railway com 
panies to renew and speed up their efforts to effect by co-operation reduc 
tions of operating expenditures by every means at their command, and within 
the authority of the present law. 

6 In conclusion, the Committee desires to express its appreciation of the 
services of Colonel 0. M. Biggar, K.C., the Committee s Counsel, whose assist 
ance in facilitating the work of the Committee was invaluable, 
of joint secretaries and reporters have also been of the highest character.

" The Commons of Canada have voted supplies required to enable the

" In the name of the Commons, I present to Your Honour the following 
Bill: 

"An Act for granting to His Majesty certain sums of money for the public 
service of the financial year ending the 31st March, 1939. 

" To which Bill I humbly request Your Honour s assent." 
After the Clerk had read the title of this Bill. 

To this Bill the Royal Assent was pronounced by the Clerk of the Senate 
in the following words: 

" In His Majesty s name, the Honourable the Deputy Governor General 
thanks His Loyal Subjects, accepts their benevolence, and assents to this Bill." 

After which the Honourable the Deputy Governor General was pleased to 
close the Third Session of the Eighteenth Parliament of the Dominion of Canada, 
with the following Speech: 

Honourable Members of the Senate: 

Members of the House of Commons: 

In bringing the present session to a close, I desire to express my appreciation 
of the careful attention given the many measures submitted for your consideration. 

International relations and domestic conditions continue to be affected by 
conflict, disorders and tensions in different parts of the world. The disturbed 
situation abroad, and prolonged and unprecedented drought in Western Canada, 
have, unfortunately, somewhat retarded recovery. Improvement in economic 
conditions has, however, been more steadily maintained in Canada than in many 
other countries. Gratifying factors in the situation are the further diminution 
in the numbers on relief, and the progressive and substantial reductions in the 
deficits in the national accounts. The outlook for agriculture in the West is 
more hopeful than it has been for some years. 

An outstanding feature of the session has been the adoption of measures 
constituting a long-range nation-wide program of conservation and development, 
designed to stimulate employment and enlarge the national income. They 
include a comprehensive housing scheme, under which special assistance will 
be afforded in the construction of houses to be owned by families of limited means, 
and of housing accommodation in urban centres to be leased at less than 
economic rentals. 

The Dominion has undertaken to pay a substantial proportion of municipal 
real estate taxes, over a three year period, on new houses erected before the end 
of 1940, and to make loans, at low interest rates, to municipalities to enable 
them to undertake projects of a self-liquidating character. 

The housing program has been further aided, and increased activity in the 
construction industry fostered by the exemption from sales tax of materials 
entering into the construction of houses and other buildings. 

Under the Prairie Farm Rehabilitation Act, further progress has been made, 
in the development and conservation of water supplies, and the formation of 
community pasture areas where lands are not suitable for cultivation. 



A.D. 1938 IST JULY 381 

Appropriations have been made for the continuation, on a broader scale, 
of the Youth Training Program, and for its extension to include persons of 
older age. 

Provision has been made for the complete nationalization of the Bank of 
Canada through the acquisition by the government of the ownership, in its 
entirety, of the capital stock of the Bank. 

The Board of Railway Commissioners for Canada has been superseded 
by a Board of Transport Commissioners, with authority in respect of trans 
port by air and water, as well as by rail. 

The trans-Canada air service is now operating a regular air mail schedule 
over a considerable area of the Dominion. It is expected that, at an early date, 
a coast to coast service will be in operation. 

The provisions of the Criminal Code relating to the improper driving of 
motor vehicles have been made more stringent. Other important amendments 
have been adopted. 

The War Veterans Allowance Act has been amended to provide for veterans 
who, although not totally incapacitated, are incapable of maintaining themselves, 
and for those who served in South Africa and were domiciled in Canada at 
the time of their enlistment. 

The registration of shop cards has been authorized, a measure which has 
been advocated for many years by labour unions in Canada. 

The Special Committee of the House of Commons on Elections and Fran 
chise Acts has given careful study to the means employed to effect redistribution 
in Canada and other countries, and to proposals with respect to poiltical expendi 
tures. A new Dominion Elections Act has been enacted. 

Considerable progress has been made in the negotiations which, for several 
months past, have been carried on with the Government of the United States, 
with a view to revising and extending the Trade Agreement concluded in 1935. 
It is hoped the negotiations will result in a comprehensive Agreement, which 
will facilitate the further development of trade between the two countries. 

Members of the House of Commons: 

I thank you for the provision you have made for the public service. 

Honourable Members of the Senate: 

Members of the House of Commons: 

In taking leave of you at this time, I pray that the blessing of Divine
